Campbell wants to mimic Henry at Arsenal

Joel Campbell has identified Arsenal’s record goal scorer Thierry Henry as his example as he prepares for his first season in the Premier League, ESPN has reported.

Costa Rica international Campbell moved to the Gunners in 2011 but has spent time away on loan at the likes of Lorient, Real Betis and Olympiakos, scoring for the Greeks against Manchester United in last season’s Champions League.


Campbell caught the eye with Los Ticos at the World Cup and has returned to Arsenal to play a role in the first team for the new season, despite transfer speculation linking the 22-year-old with a move elsewhere.


But Campbell is ready to ply his trade in the top flight of English football, setting Henry as his role model. “The Premier League's the most interesting in the world and I've always wanted to play here,” he said. “It's my dream. And I believe I'm good enough.


“I've played around 100 games in three different top divisions in Europe - Lorient in France, Real Betis in Spain and Olympiakos in Greece, where I played Champions League, too,” he continued. “I also have 36 caps for my country and I have just played at a World Cup - the biggest competition on the planet so I'm confident of being successful in any division in the world.


“[Henry] is the best example you can follow if you want to be a top striker,” Campbell argued. “Arsenal were always my favourite team because of the way they play. It was exciting to watch and gave me my passion for the Premier League.”


Campbell scored nine goals in his year with Olympiakos and netted against Uruguay as Costa Rica reached the World Cup quarter-finals, eventually bowing out to the Netherlands.
